I am terribly, terribly sleepy. Terribly.

Usually at lunch I'll get something at Wawa and eat it at the park. And then read my book, or perhaps lay down for a bit. Today I skipped the food and went straight to the nap. I woke up groggy and hungry! But I think it helped a little bit.

There were ducklings today! Goslings are okay, but ducklings are adorable. Quack quack.

There was a kid there with his mom, and he was collecting goose feathers. Loudly, which means she was encouraging this activity. Now, I don't know about you, but my mom always told me that stray feathers were gross and diseased, and I shouldn't pick them up, no matter how cool they looked. This little kid was talking about making feather masks with them. That's gross, right?

I cooked for the first time in almost a month last night, and it made me so happy. I love having my guys over. And culann was there early, and he helped clean up, and get ready, and we talked forever. When Culann and I took Budo together we got to have talks on the ride there and back, and it was great, and we don't get to do that much anymore. I sure do love me some Culann.

I sure have been listening to a lot of Elvis Costello lately. It started back in May, that week-and-a-half of Spring that we had. Y'know, cuz I was feeling frisky, and Elvis Costello = sex. Then I stopped for a while but now I'm back. It's nothing but Elvis. Elvis at work, Elvis in the car, Elvis at home. Elvis Elvis Elvis. When I'm sad, listening to Elvis Costello makes me feel sadder. When I'm angry, he makes me angrier. When I'm happy, he makes me happier. When I'm horny, he makes me hornier. When I'm high, he makes me feel higher. When I'm horny and high -- well fuckin' forgetaboutit.

Yesterday I read this book review in Salon of Dianetics. I've always been mildy interested in what the fucking deal with Scientology is (isn't everybody?) and with the new improved batshit insane Tom Cruise running around, there's a lot more talk about it. Then I was looking through this site, which is an anti-Scientology site. It's a little clumsy, but I had a fantastic time reading through this stuff about L. Ron Hubbard. That guy was CRAZY! Literally! I can't believe real people buy into this shit. Oh and also the Time Magazine article is hot. It makes no bones about saying that Scientology has no legitimacy whatsoever.

Then today I read THIS Salon article about Tom Cruise and Scientology, and everything was fine until I got to the part where they listed some Scientologist celebrities, including Jason Lee (oh well, I sort of thought he was cute) and . . . Beck. Really. Beck. That just about broke my heart. I am seriously upset by this. Beck! Beck. My favorite musical artist whom I've never seen in concert. This changes everything. I'm so sad.

Last weekend was Gaian Mind and it was fantastic. The crew: chaos4675Kevin, katsuhayabiCurt, chuntankhamenChris, littlewashume, king_kaiJeff, Jay, Kate, macivanhornMichelle, theguiltypartyTeege, and qedVince. We sat around and took drugs and got dirty and made jewelry and watched dirty hippies (and dirty . . . whatever those cats were, some of them were not hippies) and enjoyed the Fire Monkey's work (that's Kevin) and saw naked Russians and more black light than I have ever seen in my life. And we left no trace. It was a fantastic time.

Oh, and Stephanie! Stephanie appeared out of nowhere on Friday. So she was there too.

So yeah, Gaian Mind. I'll definitely go back next year.

Here are some of the pictures that made it to Photo du Jour from the weekend:

I have two parties this weekend. But Monday is free: Monday should be Laundry Day. As well as Nap Day, and Wash My Car Day. We'll see.

Like so many men before me ...
My favorite thing is when the latest picture in your Photo Du Jour is a picture of you, cause I got that page in my startup tabs and it's always nice to see your smiling face first thing in the morning.

Re: Like so many men before me ...
Awwwwww. Thanks. And me without any makeup on, even! You're such a sweetheart.

Also, how long ago did you change up your LJ layout? I like this a lot ...
Jun. 30th, 2005 09:22 pm (UTC)
Thanks, I like it too! I just did it today, I think. It's something Squares. Relaxed Squares or something. I didn't change any of the layout defaults either, this is just now nice and clean it is. I'm glad I voted for it.

You know, I always tell people this but nobody ever takes me up on it: Dianetics is absolutely worth a read, because not only does it have Hubbard's breezily mean prose style, but it's far and away one of the most batshit pseudoscience texts you'll ever read. When he really gets going, like when he's talking about how you shouldn't call your wife a fat sack of crap when she's pregnant because the baby will hear you and then grow up thinking it's a fat sack of crap, it's just so demented and hilarious it's almost brilliant. Also, if you want a book where pregnant women either get punched in the stomach or fall down a flight of stairs every three paragraphs or so, it's the book for you.

Dude, I tooootally want to read it! Totally! I always have! Also, yeah, the Salon review mentioned that disturbing anectdotey thing that runs through the whole book.

I vaguely remember trying to get ahold of a copy a few months ago, but couldn't find it anywhere except on the Scientology website, and I don't want those fuckers to know where I live. But then I was reading how they'd send members to buy Hubbard books by the million so as to propel them to the bestsellers lists, so I guess they're available at regular ol' bookstores?

Pregnant women punched in the stomach and falling down stairs every three paragraphs? Yes please!

I'm sure regular bookstores have it; I got mine at a thrift store. But shit, man, I'll send you my copy. It's not like I'm going to need to make constant reference to it in the future. If you can't find one, just let me know and I'll stuff it in the mail.

they constantly send copies to the library. next time we get one, i'll keep it for you. no need to give them any of your money.

oh, my poor hippy washu. are you coming for jenny's birthday?
Jun. 30th, 2005 09:30 pm (UTC)
I hope so! When are the festivities planned?
Jun. 30th, 2005 09:58 pm (UTC)
shit, man, i got nothing.

I ALWAYS wanted to pick up pidgeon feathers as a kid and my mom would NEVER let me! That's like picking up and playing with someone's ahir.

Man, you link to Ex Astris Scientia? I know Bernd! Well, not PERSONALLY, but I've known him on TEH INTARWEB for many a year now.

You should wander over to the Flare forums</A. at some point. It'll be a while until I can post there again (it's a long-ish story) but I think you'd fit in well.
